Our services are centred around intellectual property that can be registered. We protect innovation, design, and branding across all sectors of industry, and at all stages in the supply chain.

For each IP right we offer services covering strategic advice, pre-registration searches, registrations and renewals, oppositions and dispute resolution. We handle work throughout the world, working with local colleagues in over 100 countries.


Our attorneys specialise in one or more sectors of industry, which enables them to provide quality advice with a commercial focus.

Our patent specialists have detailed understanding of the background technology, which ensures that your patent applications are prepared with the correct scope, reducing the likelihood of challenges from third parties and objections from the patent office.

They also advise whether other forms of protection would be more appropriate. Our brand specialists work with brand managers for leading brands and their advice is commercially focussed making sure that you get the best value from your budget.

Product Launches

We can advise you on how best to protect your investment in developing a new product. We advise on the relationship between designs and other IP rights including patents and trade marks.

In some cases you may have more than one option available, and we provide advice on the relative costs, time required for registration, and scope of protection of the different rights.

Before you launch, we can conduct on your behalf a search for third party rights, sometimes called a ‘freedom to operate’ search. This is usually done when you have scoped your new project and have a clear idea of what the product will be and where it will be sold. A search can identify any major problems and enable a re-design, if required, at an early stage, which will prevent wasted development effort and avoid last minute changes and slippage of launch deadlines.
